News Bits & Pieces

LAZERTITS SHARE A TASTE OF UPCOMING SPLIT 7″
Hysterical Records have announced a split 7″ release between Lazertits and Swim Team on September 29th, with a launch show set for The Old Bar in Melbourne on October 7th. They’ll be joined by Bitch Prefect, Crop Top, Porpoise Spit plus The Pink Tiles DJs ’til close.

The first track unveiled from the split comes from Lazertits. Their contribution, ‘Lil Sister‘ offers three minutes of sweet relief from a society filled with patriarchal, heteronormative bullshit. Melodic, interweaving riffs lead you down a slippery path into a chorus imbued with all the fist-punching elation of early 90s alt-rock anthems. It’s the sonic equivalent of hugging your mates at a gig and telling them everything is going to be ok.

Swim Team guitarist Sammy Wass comments;
‘Lil Sister’ is such a banger, when I listen to it in my headphones as I’m walking down the street, it gives me that empowered feeling like I wanna stick the middle finger up to anyone who gets in my way!

Listen to ‘Lil’ Sister‘ below.

SLOWLY, SLOWLY RELEASE NEW SINGLE
Melbourne’s Slowly, Slowly have shared a new single titled ‘Aliens‘.

The track will appear on their forthcoming second album, due out early 2018.

Speaking on the single, Ben Steward comments;

the song is a stream of consciousness, equal parts self-loathing and self-pity. I wrote it in my car on my phone in about 4 minutes. I guess that’s why it kind of sucks.

They launch the single on Friday 6th October at Howler in Melbourne before heading out on tour with Something For Kate next month.

Watch a video for ‘Aliens‘ below.

MERMAIDENS SHARE NEW VIDEO, TOUR STARTS THIS WEEKEND
Mermaidens have shared their new video clip for ‘Sunstone‘ ahead of their Australian visit which kicks off on Saturday night.

Sunstone‘ is a 70s inspired tupperware party of post-punk and grunge. It’s taken from their recently released second album, ‘Perfect Body‘.

The trio will play RAD in Wollongong on Saturday afternoon, Botany View Hotel in Sydney on Saturday night, Melbourne next Wednesday 27th at The Tote and Lacklustre HQ in Canberra on Saturday 30th September before ducking back to Melbourne to play The Gasometer on Sunday 1st October.

Watch the new video below.

COUNTRY DAZE IN CASTLEMAINE
Nothing better than a road trip with friends, away from the big city madness and into the country air. Add in some of Melbourne’s finest rock exponents and the beautiful surrounds of Theatre Royal in Castlemaine and there you have it – the inaugural Country Daze event, presented by Poison City & Record Low.

Headed up by Rocket Science and Cable Ties, the line-up also includes Mod Con, The Pink Tiles, TV Haze, Flour and Fee-B Squared on DJ duties, converging on the historic Theatre Royal in Castlemaine – Saturday November 11th.

Tickets are on sale now from Oztix.

TIL THE WHEELS FALL OFF AFTER PARTIES
Til The Wheels Fall Off has revealed the three after parties closing each night of it’s sold out 2017 festival, in addition to festival set times and the lineups for Saturday’s previously announced matinee performances. Over the three days, the stage and decks will be taken over by band members from Violent Soho, Ceres, Luca Brasi and The Wedding Pingers for a set of pub rock covers, joining the likes of artists including The Bennies, Camp Cope, Bad//Dreems and more.

Expanding on a diverse local lineup that will bring belting punk rock, melodic indie and bittersweet pop to Launceston, the festival has unveiled the lineups for their previously announced day shows on Saturday 14th October, including breakfast at The Gunners Arms with Lincoln le Fevre, Zzzounds and Lilyana Sanoe, plus an afternoon matinee at The Workers Club featuring Tom Lanyon (Ceres), Luke Thomas, Pat Broxton and Isla Ka.
